What We Look For
Teaching Experience

Work Authorization in US or Canada

Reliable Technology
This shouldn’t be a shocker, but a virtual class requires a few technical things to make it happen. Learn more about Technical Requirements.
What You Should Know
Teach Anywhere
From the comfort of your living room, or kitchen, you can almost teach from anywhere in the world as long as you meet our basic requirements. No need to hop on that commuter bus since everything is online.
Flexible Hours
You set your own schedule. You can teach as many hours as you like. No minimum hour commitment. More information on Teaching Hours.
Lesson Plans, Check
Our curriculum team has already designed materials for every class so you don’t have to. Just one less thing for you to worry about.
Don’t Speak Chinese? Not a Problem
We offer full English immersion for our students, so there’s no need to know any Chinese. That said, your students might teach you a word or two.
